All available right now
P2:CE brings back several cut puzzle elements, including Adhesion gel, the Paint-Gun, Schrödinger's cubes, and others.
In addition, existing elements are enhanced with new features for mappers!
A modern game should use modern formats, so we stripped Portal 2's old BINK video support and made our own WebM video implementation!
This results in better quality and framerate as well as massive file size reduction. A win-win for everyone!
You can now also load custom videos in your map.
P2:CE is available natively on Windows and Linux, with a Mac build possible if there is enough interest. All 64bit.
Hammer and other MFC tools run on Windows natively, and run on Linux using Steam Proton.
Since we do not have the sources for Portal 2's puzzlemaker, we will have to rewrite the entire thing from scratch. When we get to that, P2:CE's puzzlemaker will be designed to be way more powerful and expandable than the original.
P2:CE's workshop will function in a similar manner to Garry's Mod or Left 4 Dead 2's workshop. Instead of uploading individual .bsp files, Portal 2: Community Edition workshop items are entire VPK archives, and can contain models, materials, maps, scripts, particles and anything else. In addition, workshop items can declare dependencies on each other, allowing you to easily use workshop content in your mod.
A workshop item doesn't even have to be a map. You can upload your model and let mappers set a dependency to your item on their workshop page. All subscribed assets will be usable in the tools as well.
